Ok, so we have inside-out burgers, meatballs, cookies, cakes (and if you have kids…clothes!)
It’s about time soup gets added to the trend, so I came up with this surprisingly delicious and easy way to enjoy a classic soup!!
And as a bonus, it’s a great first course conversation starter as well!
Hope you give it a try!
What you will need:
One large white onion (per person)
2 Beef Bullion cubes (per onion)
butter (any kind)
|Supplies & ingredients!|
a loaf of French Bread
Swiss Cheese..or Gruyere!
Peel the paper layer off of a large white onion and cut an “X” into the top, down into the onion approx. 2″ or so, making sure not to cut through the onion to the bottom!
Insert 2 beef bullion cubes down into the center of the “X”.
Frost the top with butter and a dash of pepper (no salt because of the bullion)
Wrap the onion tightly inside an Aluminum Foil packet..creating a tight seal at the top.
|So simple..yet so amazing!|
Bake at 350 degrees, on a baking sheet..for approx. 40 minutes..or until the onion is tender!
While the onion transforms in the oven, slice your French Bread into thick diagonal slices!
Top each slice with generous amounts of the cheese..Mmmm! (see pic)—->
When the onions have about 8-10 minutes left, slide the bread into the oven on a baking sheet, but keep an eye on it, so it doesn’t burn..it should be toasty and the cheese should be melty!
|Ready to be plated..or “bowled”!|
Plate each onion in its own serving bowl by carefully removing it from the hot foil, making sure NOT to lose any of the juice..pour that juice (soup) over the onion and into the bowl.
Submerge a cheesy piece of bread down into the juicy onion and enjoy this new and decadent way of eating French Onion Soup! 🙂
*TIDBIT* This could quite possibly be the only soup that may require a fork, knife AND spoon! Or, if you have lots of napkins handy, you can just use the bread! ~Enjoy!
Yum, this looks like a messy but great meal! What a fun idea!
Yep..at minimum, a knife, fork and napkins are very useful!
However, it does eliminate that cheese-spoon tug-of-war you're required to fight, with traditional French Onion Soup..LOL! 🙂
